PLEASE HELP

guys

"important [CLASS 101] student information" 

????

ay really though guys cmon i need imput 

is that appropriate 

am i being a dick by assuming my pronoun information classifies as important in their professional lives 

i really need some assistance here ??

idk if this helps but think of it as like the teacher getting to know you before class starts

like most people don’t but some people will send an email before a class starts just to introduce themselves and make sure the teacher knows who you are

and that’s kind of what you’re doing

idk what the actual subject line is though

um yes your pronoun info is pretty important to a professor who’s worth their salt.

i’ve never had to do a pronoun request email, so i might be speaking at a position of privilege and so you’re welcome to call me out if i’m just being plain wrong, but i’m pretty sure a subject header that has your class, your name, and what you’re specifically emailing them about (in this case your pronouns) tends to be the accepted method. and as hermione mentioned above, some students do send professors intro emails, and if you want to work your pronouns into that without making it seem obviously a pronoun request email you could say “my name is xyz, i’m a student in your 101 class on subject, and my pronouns are [pronouns here]” and then some stuff about looking forward to seeing them in class.

hope that helps?

I hope you don’t mind me offering a couple thoughts? Maybe I can alleviate some stress a little bit in saying that my students (I teach first year freshmen) only sometimes even email me with a subject line, sometimes the subject line is “question,” in one memorable case it was a sentence and the body of the email really didn’t add anything. So a general subject line like, “Request about Pronouns from ‘your name’ - ‘Class Name’” would be perfectly acceptable. Also, I would echo above and say that Introduction from… would also work. Most instructors (including yours, I hope) are happy to hear from students, value their students’ comfort in class, and don’t notice subject lines all that much. 

I hope this helps!

Good things about this week:

  • went to my leasing office at precisely the right time to get a package I absolutely needed that night and would have missed if I had gotten there 2 min earlier or later. 
  • chicken was buy one get one at the grocery store
  • the classes i’m teaching and the classes i’m taking went extremely well
  • got into In the Flesh and enjoyed it immensely
  • was chosen to be in my grad school’s first faculty cohort to learn how to effectively teach composition online (a hugely important opportunity)

Bad things about this week:

  • got an ear infection that is causing absolutely excruciating pain and has been doing so now for about two and a half days. 

Overall - I’m still really happy about the week!

I hated this commercial. Turns out I still hate it.

OH MY GOD THIS DAMN COMMERCIAL

I CAN’T FUCKING STOP LAUGHING its as awful as i remembered it

i cant quite explain this commercial and how it came back to me like

i couldnt remember the exact words by heart but. everything they said chimed in my head like a song i’d heard a long time ago. it was almost rhythmic, buried deep in my memory. it was probably the most bizarre way ive ever remembered something.

If you ask an English Major to read over your essay and they give you this look

image

Don’t take it personally.

English majors write. We write a LOT. And we are damn good at it, so we understand if we’re the ones you go to for help.

But keep these in mind:

- We can have as little as five and as much as 15 writing assignments every term (or even more if we are in honours or taking more than five courses at a time)

- We have to read perhaps 25 books (approx 5 books per course) on top of that.

- Those readings can include such masochistic texts as Shakespeare, Atwood, Soyinka, Derrida, Plato, Woolf, and much MUCH more.

- You are not the first person to approach us, nor will you be the last.

- No one can help get a good grade more than your course instructor.

If you finish reading this and you still want our help, please be considerate and ask us politely. Don’t force us, or else we will purposely edit it until it is worse than before. That is a promise.

Also, it never hurts to show some gratitude in the form of coffee and cookies. If you do this, we might help you again in the future.

Happy Writing

Important addition: Your college, in all likelihood, has a writing center! Use it! The students working there are paid for their time whether or not students choose to use the writing center, and on most days, the students who work their would prefer that that time actually be spent tutoring students.

I have no problem fielding brief writing and citation questions for my friends, but if they need more extensive help, I feel no shame in referring them to see me or one of my coworkers in the writing center.

I can’t emphasize enough meeting with you instructor (though I’m biased - as a composition instructor). Writing centers are also excellent (I worked at them for 11 semesters between my BA and MA), but generally speaking, be prepared to not go in for proofreading - they are not there to edit. If you have an instructor that is welcoming to students (I recognize that’s not always the case), hit up their office hours. If you don’t understand an instructor’s feedback - go directly to them! The reality is us instructors have about 15-20 minutes to spend grading papers (doesn’t seem like a lot, but multiply that by anywhere from 25 to 100 students…). Sometimes we might write a marginal comment that can be clearer. Plus - most instructors want to talk to you!
